California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
Ok, my stress level is climing still because she has just come from HR, and now the HR manager is requesting that I meet with said employee to discuss her goals and objectives for the year so she can move up. This after I said no to the Hr MANAGER. THIS EMPLOYEE IS NOT CAPABLE NOR CAN SHE PERFORM TO THE LEVEL OF EXPECTATION THAT SHE WAS ASSIGNED. So, sorry I did not notice that I had caps on. I feel like I am in a catch 22 situation and I am a hairs breath away from having a stress stroke here at work.
My own remaining staff doe not want her a part of any team they are on, because she is not capable. Working with this knowledge is only making matters worse. I don't know how to handle this anymore, and still handle the other 60 people under me, let alone the whole facility where quality is concerned.
I am so sorry I did not see I failed to send the response you requested.
How do i appropriately discipline an employee that is depending on the VP who she had a 10 year affair with and the HR manager who she is close friends with, when she is totally depending on them both to take care of her. She feels that my VP owes her a management job. She feels tht she is totally protected by the HR manager because she knows about the affair she had with the VP.
2.l Do I feel I am being harmed. It stress that has sent me to mental health started after I hired this employee into my department and she started dumping on me about her affair with my boss, to the extent that I know more about my boss's personnal life than any employee of his has a right to know. Yes, I personnaly feel I am going to lose my job over this, and no one I can talk to here without spilling my guts for getting any kind of back up. It's like a catch 22 situation, damned if you do, damned if you don't. I am at a total loss, and going to mental health once a week to spill my guts, still does not help the situation. My VP and the HR manager want to dictate to me (Quality Manager) what I will do with this employee that is not performing, and I along with my staff have had to go behind her and do the work. This is just too much, I need some very quick and serious advice, without it being, leave the job I love to do and have done for over 30 years.
I will wait on you, thank you very much.
Does this include the fact that the HR manager is demanding that I reward the employees poor performance with new tasks that will help her move up in the company? On top of that I keep a daily work journal, and she told me in the presence of my VP that just because I maintain a work journal of everything that talkes place, its nothing but paper and means nothing? It's just very upsetting that I have to sweep my morals and values under the carpet, to reward a poor performer, which is going to set a very bad presidence for the rest of my personnel, which is going to make things even worse, sense they have asked not to work with her.
